For the second year in a row, the Pageant in the Delmar Loop is among the top-5 concert venues in the world when it comes to ticket sales.
Pollstar, an industry website, bases its rankings on reports from venues about the number of tickets sold. The Pageant was number 5 in 2011, with reported sales of 181,451 tickets.
The St. Louis rock club The Pageant has been ranked among the top concert venues in the world, according to the industry-tracker Pollstar.
The Pageant was ranked number four based on sales. The venue sold more 186,000 tickets last year.
Pageant co-owner Joe Edwards says the ranking means that St. Louis is becoming a must-stop for touring bands.
